Boats and Helicopters

Picture at the top is of the ferry coming in to Mull last time I was returning. The outside of the house is finished now and we have completed all the paper work to get the electrical supply in, which has taken since September and a lot of patience. The doors are now fitted inside and all the plastering completed. Next time I go over I'm decorating and installing the radiators and the electrician will hopefully be there to start tidying up his bits.
It's starting to feel as though we are getting there, although we still have to negotiate building control, who can be very unpredictable, so until that is done we won't be holding our breath. The current debate with them is trying to persuade them of the inappropriateness of a 7 m long by 1.5m wide wheelchair ramp for a house that had to be walked to until 4 months ago and still doesn't have a downstairs bathroom. The 3 metres of tarmac to park on outside the house at the end of a half mile farm track will make all the difference!
Having got back from Mull I had a day training the rescue team with the RAF helicopter, giving people the chance to practice the different ways of entering and exiting a helicopter. The perfect weather was a real bonus.
